Leslie Lopez’s Weather Discussion – February 25, 2015

Another beauty of day in San Diego, but rain is on the way. A storm from the Pacific Northwest will be dropping down Friday evening, bringing in our first chance of showers. That changes by Saturday night into Sunday as moderate to heavy rain is expected to impact most of San Diego county.

The areas I expect to see more showers than anywhere else, will be North County. Inland areas and our mountains will see the heaviest downpours.

The mountains are also in line to get snowfall Sunday as snow elevations drop to 4,500 feet. Big Bear is expected to get several inches of new snow which will add to the nine inches it received on Monday.

Winds will also pick up on Friday, and will continue through Sunday evening affecting our mountains ridge top and desert slopes.

Before the rain arrives, enjoy the sunshine that will be around through tomorrow which will slowly turn to increasing cloud coverage Friday afternoon.
